Welcome to my world!

My life's been crazy since my Daddy moved in with me immediately after my mother's death in October 2010. My one and only kiddo headed to college at Carolina at the end of August. So...I lived on my own, for the first time in my life, for a total of a blissful six weeks. Then, I started the parenting gig with my dad. He's a combination of a grouchy old man, a surly teenager and a temperamental toddler. Needless to say, I get very close to the brink of insanity sometimes. I get through life by finding the humor in difficult circumstances. And for some reason, I wind up in the weirdest situations. I couldn't make this stuff up. So I wind up having lots and lots crazy adventures which make great stories to share with my friends. Writing about my life is so therapeutic. My ramblings range from funny to sad to angry (full of cuss words) to sweet. While my focus is dealing with the trials and tribulations of being a parent to my Daddy, I have lots of random, totally unrelated posts. Whatever's on my mind. I love to make people laugh, and I'm happy to think my readers will get my strange sense of humor. And maybe, people who are in my situation will be encouraged. That's all I can hope for...

Sigh of Relief

I solved some problems this morning so thought I'd take a well-deserved blog break. I called MLGW to try again and decided to wait until tomorrow. Since it's not the same day I call, they gave me a two-hour window. So between 8 - 10 tomorrow morning, I should have my power restored. I decided to schedule the locksmith for the same time slot. And I called my insurance agent to be sure that my homeowner's insurance is in force. And it is. Whew...

I bought The D McDonald's for lunch - so far he's not tired of it. He's been hard to please lately. Oh, since I haven't given a poop-update lately, I'll tell you that it's been better. Yesterday he asked me where I'd put the Miralax. I asked him if he was having trouble again and he said he hadn't, but the poop had been hard. He said the Miralax helps. Never mind all the fruits and veggies I've been slicing up.

The stock market's up. Two that I'm into heavily, Amazon and Rackspace, are on a roll. AMZN's up 3.5% and RAX is up 7.25%. That translates into some sweet gains for me. I think I'm back ahead of where I was when the market dropped in response to the horrible disasters in Japan and the mess in Libya. That's reassuring.

Well, I've spent the day dealing with personal biz so now I need to shift gears and focus on client work. And I'm not gonna budge...
